Cyst forming nematodes of India by S. B. Sharma Download PDF EPUB FB2

This book is a compendium of current information on all aspects of these economically important parasites. It provides comprehensive coverage of their biology, management, morphology and diagnostics, in addition to up-to-date information on molecular aspects of taxonomy, host-parasitic relationships and resistance.

Written by a team of international experts, Cyst Nematodes will. Abstract. Nineteen species of cyst nematodes have been recorded from many areas in India since when the first species, Heterodera avenae Woll.

was reported (Vasudeva, ). The golden cyst nematode, Globodera rostochiensis (Woll.) Behr., was first discovered by Jones () and since then both G. rostochiensis and G. pallida (Stone) Behr. have been found Author: Irfan Ahmad. When Franklin published her book on cyst nematodes inthe cyst nematodes were already known as serious pests of brassicas, cereals, potatoes and sugar beets.

However, at that time this group of nematode, with about 12 species, was considered tobe largely temperate in distribu tion. Now a total of species (including those that are considered as synonyms or species. The cyst nematodes are a major group of plant pathogens of economic importance in many countries throughout the world.

Considerable yield losses have been attributed to cyst nematodes attacking potatoes, sugar beet, soybean and cereals. Because of the protective cyst that is formed, which enclosesBrand: Springer US. Heterodera is a genus of nematodes in the family s of the genus are obligate parasites and different species attack different crops, often causing great economic damage.

The genus is unique among nematode genera because of the ability of the female to transform into a tough, brown, cyst which protects the eggs which have been formed within her Class: Secernentea. Twenty-one new seque nces from Iranian cyst-forming nematodes and 36 known sequence s were used for th e phyl ogenetic analy ses.
